It’s important for both our physical and mental health to take a well-deserved break occasionally; there’s no doubt getting away from the daily grind and indulging in a holiday somewhere sublime is hugely beneficial. And while for many, holidays definitely provide an excuse for a little indulgence (let’s be honest, the dessert section of the buffet is hard to resist!), it’s also a wonderful time to get fit, keep up with your healthy habits or even foster some new ones.
The gorgeously modern, five-star Long Beach hotel is known for its active relaxation concept—where adventurous, discerning guests have equal opportunity to spend their sun-filled days by enjoying adrenaline-pumping activities or by surrendering to utter relaxation along the beach or at the breathtaking spa.
This tropical paradise has everything you could want or need for a magical holiday in Mauritius; from exceptional dining outlets and daily activity programmes to a sensational beach (and beach butlers!), gorgeous pools and a glittering azure lagoon (among many others).
For those looking to get fit during their holiday or to keep up with their healthy habits, Long Beach is the perfect hotel because apart from it’s outdoor activities and offerings, it has a state-of-the-art fitness centre to cater to all of your needs.
